Dancing Your World to Life with Zoe Jakes

Shakti: What is the most valuable gem that dance has given you?

Zoe: A sense of connection to other humans. Dancing with my troupe sometimes feels like the closest I could possibly get to a group of people.


I feel that learning dance helps keep our brains and bodies elastic and strong. It can be the ultimate grounding force, bringing our self-awareness and intention back into the physical realm. So much of western culture – sitting at a desk all day, being on social media, zoning out on the bus – does the exact opposite. Dance demands focus and intention, which keeps is in our bodies.
